There always seems to be one of these studies in the mobile sphere that totally seem to blow our minds away. These are absurd, sort of stuff you never really care about but they always seem to talk about a trend. A recent study at JDSU has been categorizing how much mobile data users tend to consume. It is a surprise that despite trailing in the volume of devices that Android has out there, it is indeed the iPhone 5s users who clocked the highest numbers in terms of data consumed.
Not just the iPhone 5s, it is clear that users with Apple devices seem to consume a lion’s share of data more than those who are on Android smartphone or tablets. Six out of the top ten data hogging devices are actually Apple devices with the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPad 3, iPad 4 all prominently featuring in there. Making up the numbers for Android in the study as proper data hoggers were the Samsung Galaxy S2, Galaxy S4, HTC Sensation and Sony Xperia SP. These results are indeed surprising given the popularity of devices such as the Galaxy S III and even the Nexus line of device, none of which feature in top 10.
So, there you have it, not only are the Apple users preferring to pay the big bucks for their devices, they are also using the data to the premium.
